Lol yah this things shouldn't be selling for more than $250 max. After that I think it crosses the line of a full fledged laptop territory

We will soon own our 3rd Chromebook, and you know what - I completely agree with you. I'm getting the 2 in 1 from Costco, which with the 25 dollar coupon came out at 185 for me (tax, titles and tags). Definitely would not spend more. Just got my Wife a touch enabled latest get I-5 laptop for 325 (or like that) a few weeks ago. I can't justify the cost for something like this.

Can you find a better priced one with 15.6 screen, 4GB ram for those if us who open dozens of tabs, and 32GB of storage for various apps?

Looks like good deal. The ones most refer to are smaller screen, smaller storage, less ram often.

Yes, I bought the Acer Chromebook 15 CB5-571-C09S about 16 months ago and I'm very happy. I can't load Android apps on this one, but according to chromium.org, the status is planned for this Chromebook. It is $50 off from the price I paid as of right now at Amazon so it is currently $250, and I currently have 37 tabs open (and I do use the OneTab extension for other tabs I'll get to some day)
It will freeze up when I let videos play all night when I go to sleep some nights, but a reload+power button reboot (7 seconds) will reload all those tabs with the 'chrome crashed, do you want to reload' button upon boot.

What OP link has over this one: touchscreen, USB type C, quad core Pentium instead of a dual core Celeron, no HDMI out, (looks like no SD/microSD expansion) ... I was researching Acer Chromebooks tonight for a family member

Thanks for the heads up. Tempting.

Here's what I see from Best Buys comparison tool.

Newer, more expensive one:
* 4 more hours of battery life
* eMMC storage (less expensive, not a durable relative to SSD)
* quad core vs dual core
* better warranty (trying to find details)
* thinner and lighter by a pound roughly
* expandable memory to 8GB
* touch screen
* USB C and normal
* no HDMI


Most of those are pluses, except the lack of HDMI and eMMC vs SSD. Question is if those are worth $70. The extra battery life, being thinner & lighter, touch screen, USB C ready, and quad core, plus exandable memory seem like a considerable amount for $70

no HDMI is a deal breaker.

no need for hdmi. chromecast works great. plus this is secondary laptop. if I need to do hdmi out I'd use other one. the idea with this one is cheap mobile streaming media, email and web browsing laptop for the family.

Agree, I bought this one for the HDMI and I use my chromecast for almost everything instead of the HDMI.
I do like the SD card reader in the cheaper one. I have a 128GB SD short card installed and it sits in there flush and hasn't been removed in the past year. $70 would be worth the quad core if Android apps were stable but they are still in beta so some of the apps can't resize and other issues so I am going with another one of the CB5-571-C09S until Android is stable using BlueStacks or a stable version of Google Play on these devices

Well, this doesn't warrant an OEM to charge whatever it wants to. Just have a look at the specs. What's there that's striking? Hardly something for $200 max.

back to $399 today. Had it in my cart yesterday at $319 but never got around to the purchase.
Oh well. Anyone find any other deals on 15"+ screen chromebooks?
